Monitor One became an instant favorite among professional engineers
and studio owners, as well as earning it a place in countless home
studios. Obviously, there was only one thing left to do. Make it
even better. Better design, for improved performance. With such a
successful platform to build on, Alesis engineers wisely settled
for incremental improvements designed to coax even better
performance from our monitors.
They started with a new 6.5 polypropylene low-frequency driver for
tighter, more accurate bass response. Then matched it with a newly
redesigned, 1 pure silk-dome, high-frequency transducer for even
smoother, more accurate detail and response, and a broader sound
stage. They improved the overall frequency response (changing from
45 Hz 18 kHz, to 45 Hz 20 kHz +/- 3 dB) and coupled it with more
efficient power handling.
They also provided magnetic shielding to allow use in close
proximity to video and computer monitors. Surface improvements that
go more than skin deep. Perfectionists that they are, however, our
engineers didn just settle for tinkering under the hood. The
cabinet was redesigned for a new and more attractive professional
finish, and are now mirror image; left/right pair for symmetrical
But more than just cosmetic improvements, the new Monitor One also
features radiused edges for reduced edge diffraction, along with
improved porting thanks to the nexteneration of our exclusive
SuperPort venting technology to eliminate the hoking effect of
smaller, shorter ports. The result is a low-frequency response
which extends well below comparable near field monitors.
It all adds up to a spectacular next-generation of a popular
standard - the new state-of-the-art in affordable, high-quality
studio monitors. Features: Critical reference monitoring for
recording and mixing. Excellent bass transient response. Flat
frequency response for accurate mixes that translate to other
